Pan Gwent Meeting

Towards the end of September we attended a Pan Gwent meeting at Able Radio in Cwmbran.  Growing Space Ambassadors gave a fantastic presentation, and People First groups held a Q&A session with various heads of services.  We talked about Housing, Transport, Relationships and how people’s lives can be approved.

We chatted with the Ambassadors of Growing space about their job roles and how we would like them to feedback to us about what they do and the progress they make.

Jim Wright gave a presentation on The Govtech Catalyst, which is the £20 million fund set up to help private sector innovators tackle public sector problems. Torfaen and Monmouth are now working on taking this forward with the help of big companies such as Apple. They are working together to develop apps that will improve daily life for people with learning disabilities.
